The corral trap has been locked open for several days.  The hogs have become accustomed to coming and going.   Come in and get a bite to eat, then depart.   But today, the trap is activated.   Trigger is in back of trap.   They just need to bump it and the door slams shut.  No escape.

Trapped!

No more rooting hay meadows for these critters.

Big Boar Feral Hog caught in corral trap.

In less than two hours,

he escapes by crawling over the 52′ panels.

Our traps will need to be modified

if we hope to keep these big hogs.

I caught this big sow rooting

hog-sow-.223-041816She was in hay meadow behind us.

Along with a buddy, they were

digging for food.

The Ruger .223 American compact

converted her from a rooting destructive pest

to meat for pan sausage.

April 21, 2016

these guys and gals will cause us no more grief

pigs-041516Caught these on April 15

They provided lots of meat to several families.

No more rooting in our hay meadows for this guy

hog-111315a

Our hay meadows are constantly being destroyed by wild feral hogs.   This was one of about fifteen that entered a meadow just before dark.  He was too large for my atv to handle so I used the loader of our tractor.

hog-tusk-111315He had some nasty looking tusk.

September 16, 2015

one of these guys made a mistake

MOULTRIE DIGITAL GAME CAMERA

They walked all around the trap.   Ate the corn at the mouth of the trap, but would not enter.  They are encouraging the use of Tannerite.

And then the temptation was just too much for this guy.

Trapping is not efficient method of controlling feral hogs.  Oh you might catch one out of twenty or so, but that’s losing ground when considering total numbers.

Someone should tell these guys, “Property protected by Tannerite “
